Excerpt: I've had this phone for over three years and have to say that it was pretty high maintenance. It no longer lets me turn it on or off, so it's off the the recycling bin as not even Virgin will give me a credit on it for my next purchase. Bluetooth never worked.
Pros: Visually nice, Compact, Nice material
Cons: Problem with file filling memory, Battery cover was useless, Screen was hard to see in the sun, Accessing the internet was to slow to bother, Very poor battery life
Excerpt: I've had this phone nearly 2 years now. Rooted and used 2.3 Starship Triumph (excellent build--very stable) for over a year. Just flashed ICS rom this weekend and love it. Phone is a little slower, but overall, everything functions except for the video camera and HDMI port.
Excerpt: I have this phone for almost 14 months. I say is really good for my first android phone. The first 4 months, I had no problems with it. Until it started loosing memory, lagging, and many more problems. So I decide to root it and install the 2.3 rom.
Excerpt: My last phone was a Motorola Droid so I thought Triumph would be similar, wrong. The hardware may be OK but the software integration on Triumph sucks. #1 complaint is Bluetooth won't stay connected so the thing is useless for driving hands free.
Pros: nice screen, acceptable speed
Cons: Bluetooth is useless for driving, software configuration is full of dumb mistakes

Excerpt: I had gotten this handset for Christ,as '11. Now I myself know a whole lot about smartphones and have researched them for some time. Now, I feel like a complete idiot for choosing this handset. Let me just say, this phone is a cancer.
Pros: Big screen, Fast enough processor, Very attractive design
Cons: Everything, BATTERY LIFE, Data speeds, Again, everything.
Excerpt: I have to say that I had my doubts about both noncontract phones and their service providers. I am glad that those doubts were laid to rest with this great little phone. Its not cutting edge or leading technology, but it gets the job done and will run any android app I have tried thus far.
Excerpt: I own a small flower shop and I bet half of my business is saved on my handy little phone. I use it more as a tablet computer most days but it excels at making phone calls too. When you are dependant on yourself and husband to do the arranging, books, and deliveries a smart phone really comes in...
Excerpt: I just got this phone a couple weeks ago after switching from the LG Optimus Black and Straight Talk. These 2 phones are supposed to be very similar, however the Triumph is proving to be a much better phone.
Pros: fast processor, 5 MP stills and 720p video recording, better service for less cost, phone itself was $100 less that Walmart's Optimus Black
Excerpt: Aint much for words..... $25 or $35 a month (depending on when you joined Virgin Mobile) you wont find a better deal than that. If you use Skype voice calling you get unlimited everything. The phone aint 4G but its tops for 3G- wont find any better.
Pros: battery lasts much longer than optimus black, calls are better on my phone than my wifes, great camera I always have on me- just incase I bag that trophy trout or buck, $25 and I get unlimited service
